Delicious and versatile! We really enjoyed the intense flavors and textures of this dish. I didn't have cumin or scallions but it tasted just fine. Lends itself well to the addition of other ingredients. I added a little bit of fresh corn chopped mango sliced avocado and drizzled a bit of lime juice over the top. Will definitely make again.
Agreed with all the comments. Killer simple recipe great fir high protein lunch or dinner. The chiles cilantro and scallions give it a ton of flavor. I agree that it could use a squeeze of lime at the end and avocado.
I have made this recipe at least a dozen times. It is so good that I didn't want to share it! Sometimes we put it in burritos with a smidge of sour creme or a pinch of cheese but usually it gets eaten right out of the mixing bowl. The more hot sauce the better!
Zippy Yummy and Delicious! I found this recipe and can't stop raving about it. It was so easy to make. You can substitute larger shrimp with smaller shrimp. To brighten the flavours at the end I squeezed a 1/2 lime. Very yummy! I'm making this for my next summer party. Pros: Easy to make Cons: Can't think of any
Great Foundation recipe! This is a solid recipe to start with and it's so easy to build upon according to your tastes! We used a tbs of Chipotle Chili Powder (found in the spice aisle) because our grocery was out of adobo. I'm not sure what the difference in taste is but this substitution tasted amazing! We also added juice from one lime and a ripe avocado and it was so perfect. My recommendation is to keep the wet ingredients as listed and experiment with the dry ingredients meat/veggies. Pros: Healthy Light Fast Prep Delicious
So flavorful and fast! My husband and I loved this salad. We make it just as it is written! It is definitely going the the regular rotation especially for the summer when I can't stand eating hot food for dinner. Pros: Easy fast great for weeknights healthy Cons: none
Tried a vegetarian substitution I really like this recipe. The first time I tried it as written which is delicious I wanted to make a vegetarian version to share with my girlfriend. For the veggie version I skipped the shrimp and added chunks of hard boiled egg white (the yolks would just break up and change the texture of the rest of the dish- save them for something else like deviled eggs or egg salad) and also some chunks of lightly sauteed mushrooms. The eggs make up for protein missing from the shrimp while the mushrooms have a little firmer texture and add a bit of flavor as well.
This came together so quickly 20 minutes including chopping everything up. I love starches so served with brown rice. I also love spicy so I doubled the chipotles. Also it had a bit too much shrimp for my taste. I'll probably use half the shrimp and add avocado next time. Super bold flavors and healthy. Pros: Easy Healthy Quick Yummy Cons: NULL
Pure and Utter Deliciousness! I have made this salad numerous times and it is out of this world! The perfect balance of zest and spice. The poblano pepper is a must for those who like a little heat. I will make this again and again. Total YUM!
Fast easy delicious Took this to an outdoor concert/picnic and it was a hit. Will definitely make again. Only deviation i made was to substitute parsley for cilantro (never got that gene). May add a chili from the adobo sauce next time. But that's a personal preference. Great dish Pros: Nutritious tasty comes together in a flash
Good RT or cold Made this as described except that I used the juice of 1 lime made up to volume with cider vinegar. The chipotle in adobo and cumin renders most of the flavor but it still seems to need something - can't think what. Pros: Comes together easily Cons: Needs something to move from good to great
Just OK It looked like a great recipe and had ingredients that I like but it was blah. I may make it again but if I do it will be with lime instead of cider vinegar I think that might give it a brighter flavor. Pros: Easy Healthy Cons: Kind of flat
Flavorful easy and quick! I doubled the adobo chili because we really like spice. This was great as a dinner with a few artisinal chiptole chips. My husband raved about it. Looked good and tasted good. Pros: Easy full of flavor
Perfect summer meal This has been added to my list of favorite summer dishes. The cumin and cilantro and pepper give it a 'chili-flavored' flair that really pops this dish. I felt I needed a starch with it so I cooked up some jasmine rice for the side which I ended up mixing in. Delicious! A must try! Pros: easy cool very tasty Cons: a little veggie-cutting involved slightly expensive
